Grasscrete View Gallery
Occasionally confused with pre-cast blocks Grasscrete is in fact a cast on site cellular reinforced concrete system with voids created by styrene void formers.
This type of construction offers significant structural advantages over precast concrete and plastic systems:
- load bearing up to 40 tonnes gross vehicle weight
- resists differential settlement
- reduces sub-base depths
- eliminates kerb edges
- no reliance on grass for stability
- optimum drainage capability
The lightweight nature of the Grasscrete former moulds enables us to ship economically throughout the world and with a corresponding reduction in our carbon footprint.
Typical traffic related specifications for Grasscrete can include:
- vehicle parking for daily or overspill use
- emergency access
- maintenance access
- highway verges and pull-ins
In addition to its ability to withstand traffic loads, Grasscrete is also massively used for projects in the water environment. Tested to flow rates in excess of 8 metres per second, this self-venting paving system is ideal for armouring the following:-
- storm/drainage channels
- river and sea defences
When combined with its ability to withstand traffic, Grasscrete has a unique position in the field of Water Engineering.
